About

Dr. Pig is an anthropomorphic pig character in the Nickelodeon computer-animated TV show Back at the Barnyard wearing a lab coat and stethoscope. Online the character has been parodied in Tumblr blogs and an image macro series often captioned with variations of the phrase "I diagnose you with dead", a play on the English translation of "Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru" (translation: “You Are Already Dead”) from Fist of the North Star.

Origin

The television series Back at the Barnyard, a spin-off of the 2006 film Barnyard, premiered on Nickelodeon on September 29th, 2007. The series ran until November 12th, 2011, when the final episode was broadcast on Nicktoons. In the show, a recurring segment featured the character Pig hosting a mock television show titled "Ask Dr. Pig," in which he discusses various health issues (shown below).
